Forum: GratefulDead Subject: Oprah's Picks

Hey Now - Epiphany folks.

I think we should start Oprah's Weekly GD Concert Group.

First, we must choose "THE OPRAH" among us. Someone who has time to preview, or the knowledge to recommend the weekly show(must be streamable on LMA).

Next, each Thursday "THE OPRAH"(hereforward to be referred to as "TO")will release Oprah's Picks Volume I, and so on for weeks to follow.

That way, each weekend, those of us who have time, can listen to the show(either carefully or as background music)and report back on Monday with or perspectives.

No pressure to participate, take a week off anytime. It seems like we're almost already doing this, but haven't quite organized the masses(all 10 of us).

So, everybody ponder it, and think of ways to improve this model, and we'll have something, I'm sure.

Who's comin' with me man...??

Hi Whirlwind - Thanks for the suggestions. It's Oprah's because of the book club, obviously. AND, I really wanted to call the organizer "THE OPRAH", because it's imposing and a little scary. ALSO, there is some chance The Oprah Show will hear about our little club and we'll all get to go to Chicago and she'll give us a bunch of free stuff! 'Cause that's what Oprah does right? HaHa!

Although we could call this Bill Walton's 6feet-and-under, bong-smoking, GD-listening Consortium, but that would exclude tall people who don't smoke pot. And we don't want to exclude anybody...

I'd almost run out of things to spend time on at work and to keep me from studying too hard, lol! My two 1/2 y-o daughter begs me to listen to Jerry Garcia. The other day we were in the car listening to Bob Marley and she says, I don't like Bob Marley, put on Jerry Garcia. I almost drove off the road imagining Bob and Jerry having a good laugh with St. Stephen. Looking forward to participating in the fun! -daliguana

Wow, just logged into the archive and saw that this post is really being taken seriously! Which isn't to say that my earlier post was said in jest or fun, 'cause i really would love to put on my headphones every week to the dr's pick, or whoever chooses to sit the throne, and then get into a good discussion of the show with all you like-minded folk. And since i have to sit here at my computer for school and work-related stuff, i will definitely be committed. So count me in please.

And i agree, Oprah's picks should come from all eras, even eras that i am almost completely unfamiliar with, such as the post-brent era. And not just the boards but the aud shows as well. It would be really cool if the various Jerry Garcia band formations could be streamed as well, but alas, that dream has not yet come to fruition.

Check out GDLive.com Lots of Garcia incarnations including his earliest bluegrass stuff from 1962, 63 and 64. I've also done some Matrix 68, 70 Jam sessions with Garcia, Jorma, Elvin Bishop.... There's 70's stuff and more. A nice site. Downlaods are shn files AND you never get bumped or shut out like you do on this site.

I hear ya Wayne and thanks for the kind suggestions. But i was mostly mentioning the Garcia stuff so that it could be incorporated into the Oprah picks club here at the Archive. I've been to gdlive and got a bunch of the Garcia shows, as well as a good bit from the various torrent sites. In fact, i've really been getting into the Garcia & Saunders shows from '72. Absolutely blistering stuff.

However, tomorrow IS Thursday and you know the saying, "strike while the iron is hot". So, we may go with an interim "THE OPRAH" and use a show which was suggested earlier. Hint hint.

So stay tuned...

Hi BlkPeter - No selection has been made. I want this to be a democracy, so I am waiting for an overwhelming favorite. I figure either somebody will offer to be "TO", or we'll bestow the honor upon somebody...

3 of the current nominees haven't check-in, otherwise nobody voiced recommendations which were based on solid info. I have a feeling there's a snake in the grass. Somebody who knows he/she has listened to more hours of GD than the rest of us.

That doesn't change my enthusiasm to get this going. Tomorrow, we will know more.

SHOW YOURSELF! STEP FORTH AND FULFILL YOUR DESTINY! BE "THE OPRAH".

Another thing that I would hope for if this project were to come to fruition, would be that the TO would dig deep. I, for one, would be dissappointed if the shows were limited to the usual suspects, you know, the Fillmore's , Avalon Ballroom, Closing of Winterland, Cornell '77, Cape Cod '79 etc. Certainly these shows have their place in this project, however, as we all know, there are many underrated gems out there that, if they were brought to light, would shine as brightly as those do. To me this would be a great success if after this project has been going on for a while, we have added some new concerts to the current "best" shows lists that really haven't changed much in the last 10 years or so.

Precisely. That is why we need a Guru to be "TO". Anybody can tell you to listen to everbody's top 10. This person must have an historic perspective of the band. I too, hope to hear the off-the-beaten-path stuff. That's the whole idea...

I think this could be a fun venture, and I would definitely be willing to participate.

That being said, I appreciate my name being mentioned as a possible candidate for TO, however I don't believe that I am the right person to tackle this task. This position calls for someone who has a healthy appreciation and knowledge of all the eras of the band. While I love all the years leading up to '91 (and I am on record here as especially appreciating '72-'83), I don't have the appropriate appreciation, or for that matter the knowledge, of the post Brent era that is required for the task at hand, and would not be able to satisfy the many folks at this site who truly love this era.

I think our TO should either be :

1)someone who has a fair understanding and knowledge of the complete repertoire or:

2)a team of 2-4 "experts" in various eras, maybe a Pigpen/Keith, a Brent, and a Bruce/Vince specialist.

My vote goes to having one person as our TO and would go to the Doctor if we could lure him back from his self imposed exile from this site.

Hey Now High Flow - and all you crazy Bozos. There I was, getting baked listening to my new Jefferson Airplane Baxter's
remastered - when I got a cozmic bolt that said "go check out
the Archive, NOW!"
So I did - and was blown away both by the kind recommendations and by the excitement of the idea. I am flattered to be voted into this fun and honored position by some. Mostly, it just is very gratifying to me to know lots of folks got turned onto new shows, or new ways of listening partly because of my zany musings. So let the fun continue, and as Wavy Gravy says, "if it's not fun, why do it?"
Well here's the deal - I have spent the summer both trading and DLing like crazy almost every 80's and 90-91 SBD that exists. I have listened to so much 80's GD this summer - I am sick of listening to the Dead!! Not really. LOL. I probably listen to 2 new Dead shows a day, and I still can't keep up. Someone sent me the entire March 1990 run. What can I do?? Ditto the entire Dylan run from 1987. I have to eat and sleep.
Anyway, so I'm a little weak on 1980 and 1982. And I really suck on my 1978 collection. But, no lie I've got in the ballpark of 95% of all the SBD's from 1968 through 1977. And I would rate my 80's collection in the 80-90% range, with some years like 1985 and 1990 nearly complete, also 1991.
So I think I have a fairly comprehensive listening background - good enough to pick a weekly show from now till we're all drawing Social Security, ha ha!!
My suggestion is the same as High Flow's - I could pick a weekly show -
1. From a mix of decades, 1969 one week and 1989 the next.
And so on. from 1968 thru 1991.
2. The discussion would be wide open, not only what we liked, but also criticisms of the show too.
3. Historical and anecdotal information could be shared, as well as trivia about the show.
4. We could cross-reference songs, jams, etc. to other shows and make comparisons (sounds like english class!!)
5. And, this would allow us to review and discuss a show in ways the actual review pages do not, which is attractive too.
6. The OT position could definitely be rotational - if there's a small circle of 5-6 of us who want to take turns doing this, that would be WAY cool, and the old hippie way.

Okay - so where do we go from here? Tomorrow - ooops, today is Thursday!!! So I will check back later today, and if it's okay - I will post the first Oprah's Picks!! Big hint - I have a real killer 1985 show in mind, hee hee. I will most likely pick my top tens, but I want to also mix it up and pick some shows from the 80's particularly that many people might not know. And maybe not a top ten show, but still worthy of collecting.
So great to see so many involved and interested in keeping this tradition alive - THIS is the old LAMA!!! They can take away the SBD's, but not our enthusiasm and spirit.
See you later, soon.
cheers,
Dr. Flashback (formerly in the Land of Lurkdom)

If nominated, I will not run, if elected I will not serve!

I think another infrequent, but savvy TO would be Stratocaster, but I haven't heard much from him since the boards went down.

This thread, however is very enlightening, showing me that there are some folks that have demonstrated that their critical wisdom can be respected. To have such a huge amount of available content, it makes sense that we come to trust the guidance of souls that are more well versed in both the quality and history that we're digging into.

Personally, I gravitate toward most things 1970-1980 and the wealth of good material there could keep me busy for a long, long time. It's the stuff that seems to be the most satisfying for my critical ear. But it also ignores a huge amount of historical content available that others may prefer.

That said, my point is that there's a vast difference between flaming and being able to count on good quality critiquing of the content here. Things like sound quality, tempo, mix, harmony singing, flubbed lyrics are all crietria we judge differently.

It would be hard to be Oprah.

Yes, being "TO" sounds daunting. However, I guess the greater goal is to get a group of people listening to a common performance.

"TO" would not be held accountable for acts of god, and bad recordings or performances are part of what GD Archive is about. It's the real deal, warts and all. No matter what show "TO" selects, somebody will be critical. Hopefully, critical of the show not "TO".

No matter who is "TO", he/she did NOT write or perform the songs. "TO's" duty is simply to direct us to a show and offer a few things to look for.

We must treat "TO" like Mother Nature. Smell the roses, enjoy the breeze, but watch for lightning and falling rocks. In other words, take the good with the bad and enjoy a little risk now and then. That's why we liked GD to begin with remember?

Yes, good idea. Keep in mind, "The Oprah" must have vast knowledge of the material and must be willing.

For a veteran trader it should not be too difficult a job. Hopefully, there is 1 noble head out there who would enjoy the task.

Also, "The Oprah" title can be passed-on. If the sitting "TO" feels there is a worthy subject, the mantle may be passed.

Hey Now - Please chime in if you are interested in this group.

Whether or not you have a potential "TO" to nominate, we'd like to know how many "members" we might have.

My family will definetly participate. We listen to lots of music each weekend around here.

I'm interested. I can only stream here at work, my connection is too slow at home. Hopefully we'll listen to all years and just one era ( especially not heavy on mid 80's or late 90's sorry )although I'd like a healthier portion of 70's and 89-91

Hi Blkpeter - I simply don't have the knowledge-base to be "TO". My collection is modest in size, so I don't have years and years of experience lisetning to 100's of tapes. There are some here with vast collections which have been accumulated over many years. I feel that a person who fits this description should be "TO".

However, if that person doesn't surface here, sure I'll do it. As long as you guys will play along...

Lets' wait and see...

my Daughter used to like the Dead,FOTD and lazy river road where her favorites, now she's 8 and thinks she's cooler. My son (5 ) still loves them. My daughter has decided she hates Sugaree so now my son takes great joy in requesting it everytime we're in the car.

Both of them seem to take a morbid fascination at the fact that Jerry was missing part of a finger.

It is really great that you are all on-board. AND, it is super to hear about all the kids who are hearing this stuff. WE are the ones who are perpetuating this legacy. Ya think Rhino has the 3-15 year-olds demographic in mind for their marketing? Doubt it. A pat on the back to all you GD mommies and daddies out there!
